In the second music video installment of his solo mixtape Agust D, BTS rapper Suga spits more hard lines, this time about his success as a musician in "Give it to Me."
Very much in tune with his confidence and passion, Suga addresses haters directly here. While the rapper has received much criticism over the past three years for becoming a K-pop idol rapper and "selling out," he turns it around and silences critics for good with this track.With the fiery scenes in "Give it to Me," the video appears to be a continuation of the first installment, "Agust D". The song boasts some eccentric, frantic strings and jumbled voices that haunt the track even under the hip-hop beat. A couple times in between lines, Suga laughs, sounding borderline deranged. His lyrics are far from it, however, blasting those who have hounded him in the past. With Suga's first music video and this one, he's made it very clear he's taking no prisoners.
As a BTS member, he's known for his quiet and sleepy demeanor, but as solo rapper Agust D, he's come out of that shell to pin detractors against the locker. He's revealed much of himself through his lyrics, including his struggles with depression and social anxiety.
Suga plans to release a third and final music video from the 10-track mixtape for the song "So Far Away," but a release date has not been announced. The mixtape can be downloaded for free.
